In just seconds, car accidents can change or end lives

In the seconds that it takes an accident to occur, some Connecticut drivers feel as if time speeds up, and others feel as though time is standing still. In either case, in just seconds, car accidents can change or end the lives of those who become embroiled in them. One woman will never have the chance to give her opinion on this issue because she died as a result of a recent crash involving three vehicles.

The 85-year-old woman was a passenger in a sports utility vehicle driven by a 66-year-old woman. As they traveled south in Norwalk on Route 7, a second vehicle crashed into them. This caused their SUV to roll, go through a metal guardrail and slide 75 feet down an embankment where it finally came to rest. The driver suffered injuries that placed her life in danger. Her passenger made it to the emergency room of an area hospital only to be pronounced dead there.

The vehicle that hit the SUV spun into yet another vehicle before coming to rest in the grassy median of Route 7. The third vehicle came to rest in the lanes. No injuries were reported from either of these vehicles.

The investigation into this tragedy is ongoing. As the families and the surviving victims struggle to deal with the aftermath, they may file civil actions in a Connecticut court in an attempt to achieve restitution for the monetary losses and other damages they sustained and may continue to sustain in the future. If successful, they may be awarded monetary judgments similar to those seen in other car accidents.
